When we meditate on the clarity of the mind, we experience a deep inner tranquility and peace. It actually has infinite benefits – from calming our mind and helping us to dissolve away distractions, worry, and stubborn mental habits; to improving our concentration and mindfulness; to preparing us for a realization of the ultimate nature of things; to increasing our bliss and the ability to realize directly our own very subtle mind; and, finally, to attaining actual enlightenment.
As Buddha Shakyamuni said:
If you realize your own mind you will become a Buddha; you should not seek enlightenment elsewhere.
This is a wonderful opportunity to come along and learn how to do this meditation with experienced meditator Kadam Lucy James. The course consists of two talks and two guided meditations, with time for question and answer.
